14th October 1973, October 14 incident

        The October 14 incident was a violent crackdown on protesters in the Grand Palace and Ratchadamnoen Road by the government of Prime Minister Thanom Kittikachorn, killing 77 people and 857 injuring. Buildings on Ratchadamnoen Road were damaged. 

        After the incident, Field Marshal Thanom Kittikachorn resigned from his position and elections were held. But the new government was not stable enough to resolve the situation, leading to another bloodshed in 1976 or the 6 October incident.
